Uterine bleeding, also known as abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), is a gynecological condition characterized by irregular, heavy, or prolonged menstrual bleeding outside of the normal menstrual cycle. It can occur due to various factors, including hormonal imbalances, uterine fibroids, polyps, endometriosis, or certain medical conditions.

A well-woman health check is a comprehensive healthcare assessment designed to evaluate and monitor the overall health and well-being of women, including reproductive health. During this check-up, healthcare providers may inquire about menstrual patterns and any abnormal bleeding experienced by the woman. They may also conduct a physical examination and order tests, such as blood work or imaging, to identify the underlying cause of uterine bleeding.

Early detection and proper diagnosis of uterine bleeding are essential for effective management and treatment. Based on the results of the health check, appropriate interventions can be recommended to address the specific cause of the abnormal bleeding, improve the woman’s reproductive health, and ensure her overall well-being.
